I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. As queen, I enjoy many special things. One of them is my Special Rain Spot. Okay, I am ready now, Lady Human.
Me: There you go.
Stella: No, not that door. The other door.
Me: No, everybody’s using the big yard.
Stella: No, it is raining. I do not use the big yard when it is raining. We already had this arranged, remember?
Me: Well, everybody is using the big yard today. That’s my arrangement.
Stella: But it is raining out there.
Me: It is raining everywhere.
Stella: But it is raining more in the big yard because it is bigger.
Me: No, it’s pretty much raining the same amount all over the property. In fact, you will run into less rain in the big yard because the big trees are blocking some of it.
Stella: But my Special Rain Spot is MY SPECIAL RAIN SPOT. The big yard is not the same. ANYBODY can use that on a rainy day. I am not just ANYBODY. I AM THE QUEEN.
Me: And I am the human and I say that the safest spot today is the big yard.
Stella: Uggghh! What good is it to be queen if you can be overruled by a mere human!
